Our server, Lauren, added a lot to making it a great experience. Great personality and appropriately attentive.
Loved the ambiance, and food and service were wonderful. Hope to get back soon!
We had just gotten into town after a beautiful day in Niagara Falls and had worked up quite the appetite. Our server Shannon was second to none! Shannon guided us through the menu and even provided tips on some local attractions. The Rissotto Sticks were unlike anything we had tried before. The Pork Gnocchi was like pork resting on pillows!
Food was excellent, seating was a bit uncomfortable. A little pricey but worth it
Dinner was great! Waitress was very friendly and pleasant.
Owner Nick Pitillo greeted us with a smile and a hug before we even got to the door. As usual, the vibe inside was electric. We ran into some friends and chatted a bit before heading to our cozy table. Mirinda, our server, is a true professional. She was excellent: knowledgeable, upbeat and fun, attentive but not intrusive. Our appetizer (a stuffed pepper with risotto) and our entrees (Fra Diavolo and chix parm) were wonderful. We left full and happy. Love the O166!
We had a wonderful meal with prompt and attentive service!
Disappointed that the great lunch menu is now limited to a sandwich and meatballs for the main entree portion of the combo. The pastas really enhanced the menu.
Left before eating. We waited at our table for 10 minutes and was not approached by wait-staff. Unable to hold a conversation in this establishment because noise from other patrons was excessive (hearing protection required for this level of noise).
The food was very good. We had been here before but this time it was so loud. We couldn’t hear each other talk. The food was good but just not impressed in how noisy it was
Waiter was fantastic. The wine pour was very good, not skimpy. I would definitely go back.
We especially loved the Risotto Sticks Appetizer. The SeaBass was fantastic. Service was outstanding. We got our requested window view & parked right in front. Nice experience. We’ll be back!
The service was great!! Fresh bread, great cocktails , and the specials were delicious . Everyone at the table had a delicious item ... cowboy pork chop, fish special and chicken sausage pasta
A must do!
We are always happy to go back to Osteria 166. Had a wonderful scallop, risotto with peas, and roasted broccoli meal. Risotto a tad overcooked but otherwise great!
I had the sea bass which was very delicious. My husband had a pizza. He could of had more sauce to match the amount of cheese they put on it. The waitress was kind enough to get more sauce and that made the pizza so much tastier for him. Nice time.
Excellent service and food. Although a relative small menu, a good variety is offered. Food is delicious. Would definitely eat here again. When we went in the past, they had paper tablecloths/sheets. They no longer do this. Having European family, using a tablecloth or paper is nice as guests feel the table is clean. I think some people would think paper is cheap but we’ve traveled and some of the best places we’ve eaten have used paper tablecloths. Don’t judge based on this...judge based on the food service!
One of my favorite Italian spots in Buffalo. The food is always spot on, the ambiance pleasant, and the service friendly. They always have a variety of house made pastas and great specials. They also offer gluten free pasta and pizza which is always helpful.
Our server made our dinner wonderful, she couldn’t have been any better. Went out of her way to make my girlfriend’s birthday special
Cozy and yummy. Great comfort food and Italian favorites. Excellent service.
They did not have some items on menu but otherwise food and service was excellent
We called ahead to have our lunch ready and when we arrived. We sat down our food was brought to us and we got to enjoy a meal without having a rush!
We all really enjoyed ourselves and had an excellent meal & drinks. Our server was very friendly and attentive and gave very helpful recommendations on different dishes. We'll be back.
Fabulous bread and the best dipping oil was brought out directly to the table - we appreciated this as wer were starved. The beet salad is to die for and any pasta you order will be terrific! Try it!
My husband said it was the best chicken parmesan he's had.
The risotto was the best that I have ever had! Definitely would go back.
Great place..Had the veal parmesan and it was not only incredible there was a ton of food.
We went to our favorite restaurant in downtown Buffalo to celebrate a birthday, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the servers were outstanding, and the owner even bought us a couple round of shots. Robert was our waiter for the evening and he is top notch. We will continue to come back because of how amazing this place is. Thank you, Osteria!
It’s been probably 6 months or more since we dined at Osteria and just like every time before we were not disappointed! Great, friendly service - fantastic food - nice ambiance. Continues to be one of our favorites!
Timely seating, great wait staff, good food and drinks
As always, a great time! Food was great! Tried a few different items we hadn’t tried, and we were not disappointed. See you again soon!
Everything was outstanding. My favorite, the Brussels sprouts with pancetta appetizer. Scrumptious!
We were greeting by a very friendly staff. The food and drink options were extensive. My party enjoyed a different salad each and generous entrees. I had one of the specials offered (salmon with asparagus and risotto) and was very satisfied.
Great service and great food! We went with a group of 8 including a child under 10 years old with Celiacs disease. Osteria 166 was more than accommodating to all of our dining needs (including providing gluten free options) while providing excellent service and amazing food. We will definitely be returning here and highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was delicious. Service outstanding. I had the sea bass with risotto- cooked perfectly! A bit overpriced was the only negative.
Service was great.. Grilled calamari was excellent, seabass with risotto was very salty and the seabass was overcooked.
Awesome food and service! Next time I'm in Buffalo, I will definitely be back!
Awesome...thank you for a wonderful time...food was great, friendly service and comfortable atmosphere...be back soon
one of the best servers ever. We truly enjoyed every part of the meal and experience
